NICE is painting itself into a corner of irrelevance


A criteria for local NHS England performance investigations is that practices will be judged on being ‘NICE Compliant’. From the evidence I’ve seen, assessors will latch onto any perceived deviation from guidance and highlight that in their reports. GPs deviate from NICE guidance at their peril - all 20k pages of it - because that could see them being referred to NCAS or worse.
